Expanded P-49 TFR Heats Up

President Bush, craving some of that Texas homelife, is heading home. The President will be spending the Easter holiday at his ranch near Crawford Texas, and as a result, Prohibited Area P-49 heats up and expands through 12:15 p.m. Monday, April 21.

The current TFR establishes a 30-mile, <18,000-feet msl, TFR centered around the President's ranch--which means that ALL flights without special Secret Service clearance are prohibited within a 10-mile radius of the ranch. Flights within 10-30 miles must be on an active IFR or VFR flight plan with a discrete transponder code assigned by ATC and remain in two-way communications with ATC. Flight training, practice instrument approaches, aerobatic flight, glider operations, parachute operations, ultralight flights, and hang gliding within the TFR are prohibited. Killeen Municipal Airport, which closely borders the TFR, has a special exemption to allow flight training, traffic pattern activity and permit normal VFR ingress and egress. Pilots should always check the NOTAMs prior to takeoff by calling Flight Service.
